I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

grep is a command that you use to find something IN a file - if this is what you want then you cannot do that with WinSCP

If your question is about filtering, you have your answer above this comment.

From the WinSCP help:


Files displayed in panel can be filtered.

Enable filtering from main menu (View > Filter in Explorer interface, Local (Remote) > Filter in Commander interface). Filter dialog will appear.

Number of files filtered out (if any) is displayed on status bar. In Commander interface, current filter is shown on path label.
